The Mosquito Magnet® Advantage
Mosquito Magnet® traps are backed by over 20 years of research and 15 patents that make our traps technologically advanced.
Mosquito Magnet® traps work by mimicking the way humans attract mosquitoes. Through its exclusive patented CounterFlow™ technology the trap converts propane into CO2, mixes it with the precise level of heat, moisture and attractant to lure mosquitoes to the trap and then vacuums mosquitoes into the net where they dehydrate and die.

Review RateExtremely effective product for us.
This is our 3rd Mosquito Magnet. We have 2 of the battery operated ones & 1 plug-in. We live on a very large & "wet" property & these machines have done a marvelous job of managing the local mosquito population. When we first moved here several years ago, it was impossible to go outside at night without "suiting up" (even to wearing thick gloves). The bugs were so thick, you would inhale them. Now we have almost none. We are especially grateful for this product because we have dogs & heartworms have become a huge problem here. It also has helped tremendously with the black flies, although, quite frankly, I don't think anything can fix that problem. Well worth the money.
Review RateIndependence Model...Superior product!
Finally got Magnet set up and running 5/24. This item is fabulous. First time in 50 years I have been able to enjoy sitting outside! Yay! The packing lacked a couple of items,,, The instructional CD and the Quick Clear Adapter. Additionally one of the bug bag loops on the installed bag broke. Please replace and send missing items ASAP. I would like to have local contact for Mosquito Magnet to ensure I have it set up correctly. Not sure about the opening and placement of the bug bag. The instructions could be more specific. Thank you for your superior product!Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are glad to hear you are satisfied with the product! The Quick Clear Adapter and Quick Clear Cartridges are no longer recommended; as long as all the other maintenance procedures in the manual are followed, the unit will operate for many years without incident.
Please contact us directly for further assistance regarding the way the net was received as well as assistance with the set up of the trap. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at (800) 953-5737. We are happy to help!
Review RateI have it used it works.
I am a Beekeeper so using the Mosquito Magnet is critical for eliminating Mosquitos and Sand Gnats in Florida without the need for the County Mosquito spraying. I have used the Independence system for about ten years and it clears my 1/2 acre very well. It was extremely helpful after the last two hurricanes, a week after the storms I was cleaning out the full catch bag every three days.
Review RateGreat production
I use three on a two acre lake property, one in front of cabin and to near water. Very few mosquitos flying around, some years no mosquitos at all. Traps catch thousands of mosquitos, deer flies, no-see ums, occasional horseflies. Great product, well worth the money.
Review RateStops working
This product works great; when it works we purchased 3 of the independence model. They all last about one season then they no longer continue to run. The company offers a one year warranty but that is the problem; it will work for one year then the following year & no longer works. At that point your warranty is no longer valid. If it was less expensive I would just purchase a new one each year but at almost $700 I expect at least 5 years out of it. Unfortunately I will no longer purchase at this price point for one season.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat product.
Great product and easy to set up. I put it out early in the season when it was too cold out. But it's caught the first couple that showed up since it's slowly warming up.
Review RateDo not reccomend. Piece of junk
I purchased a Mosquito Magnet from Sam's Club about 10-12 years ago and it worked great. When it came time to replace it I purchased the Independence Model from our local ACE Hardware in October of 2015 for about $ 600.. Since it was the end of the season I put the new unit in my garage until April 2016. After a couple of months I had to return the unit because it wouldn't keep running. It was repaired under warranty. This year 2017 it has continued to stop. I contacted the manufacturer who informed me it was out of warranty and there would be a charge for repairs. This unit has never worked properly. I have purchased over $ 1,000 worth of nets, baits, cleaner cartages and batteries, the darn thing will not run. (The only way to get it to run for a short time is new batteries) My advise is to call an exterminator to have your yard sprayed for Mosquitos. It will be cheaper and a lot less frustrating. I would never recommend this product to a friend.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat product
We bought our first mosquito magnet 12 years ago and only had to have it repaired once. It finally died so we ordered the battery operated model. So far so good but the propane tank did empty at 3 weeks!
Review RateWorks well..
We placed our previous Mosquito Magnet in a catch area which resulted in larger results, but it meant running power leads across the yard. When that unit failed after ~8 years we purchased the Independence model. The new unit has caught significantly more mosquitos and being battery operated means we can move the unit to where it will be the most effective. Recommend..
Review RateToo unreliable.
When it chooses to works, it sucks up a lot of bugs. When it has a "thermistor fault," you're cooked: you either have to wrap it up and ship it to Tennessee or cart it 50+ miles away and leave it for several weeks (while the mosquitoes re-establish themselves on your property) and then pick it up. This is the second or third time I have had to "fix" an Independence model, and it's no longer worth the hassle. It's too expensive to fail this often. Simpler, less expensive machines will either be easier to fix or cheaper to replace.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

- All About
Many people believe that mosquitoes are simply annoying insects that bite and leave an itchy bump that will simply disappear in a few days. What they don't realize is that these tiny pests can carry deadly diseases that cause thousands of illnesses and deaths each year. With the increase in international travel, no one is immune.
Maximizing the Performance of Your Mosquito Magnet® Independence Trap
Here are some helpful bits of advice to help you keep your Mosquito Magnet® trap performing at its peak 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Proper placement of your Mosquito Magnet® is crucial to its success. If placed correctly, mosquitoes will be drawn to the Mosquito Magnet® trap instead of you.
If maintained properly, the Mosquito Magnet® can run at its best for many years.
Increase your catch rate up to 10 times!!
Using an attractant is critical to the performance of your Mosquito Magnet®.
The choice of which attractant to use depends upon where you reside in the U.S.
